Documentary Premiere: Philip Jones Griffiths Vietnam War Photographer

Fifty years ago, in 1966, the Welsh photographer Philip Jones Griffiths first visited Vietnam. It was an experience that would profoundly shape his career, as well as the world’s understanding of the human cost of war. Griffiths captured incredible images of the victims of war from innocent civilians to young soldiers caught up in the conflict. His 1971 photo journal, VIETNAM INC. transformed forever our understanding of this terrible conflict.
